Greenend Gardens (17/02274/PPP) - This application was refused by the Development Management Sub Committee on 02/08/17. This is fantastic news for local residents who have been steadfast in their opposition to the plans. The application would have resulted in the loss of well used and cherished green space which, I and the residents felt was unacceptable and in contravention of planning guidelines.
"The proposal is contrary to the Local Development Plan Policy Env 4 in respect of alterations and extensions to listed buildings. The proposed external alterations would diminish the special interest of the listed building, and result in an unacceptable loss of historic fabric to the detriment of its historic value."
In January we launched the second consultation of our Airspace Change Programme. We used feedback received during the initial consultation to help determine our preferred route options and encouraged people to engage with us and respond to our presented route options.
During the second consultation we received a total of 3,963 responses; 18 from elected members, 61 from organisations and 3,884 from members of the public.
You can read a copy of our Second Consultation Finding Report on our website http://www.edinburghairport.com/pages/airspace-change-programme. This report does not put forward our response to the consultation. Rather, it describes what we did and what people told us.
The responses and information gathered will help us determine our final proposal on the route options before submitting them to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) later in the summer. We will be producing an executive summary of our submission to share with stakeholders and those with an interest in the project.
Until then, I hope that you find this report useful and thank you for your contribution and your continued interest.
